Schools Across India to Compete for Diwali Math Challenge - Registrations Open!

5 Virtual Teaching Platforms That Educators Love

Mangahigh known for its gamified math learning is all set to come out with their Diwali Math Challenge.

Having the experience of hosting similar competitions for New Zealand in 2014 and Ireland in 2015, Mangahigh is on the lookout for the Top Schools across India in partnership with EdTechReview!

This online math competition will see all primary and secondary schools across India compete with each other on Mangahigh's games-based learning platform, to fight for the Ultimate Diwali Glory across the 11 day challenge period.

Mangahigh offers a student centric learning resource, with 600+ activities for K-10. All activities adapt in difficulty to address the learning needs of the student and are embedded within the gamified platform. Students are motivated to earn medals, collaborate with their peers and improve their personal profile.

The Diwali Challenge is about students completing math activities, which in turn contributes medal points to your school's tally. Lessons are automatically assigned to students based on their age, so it's very simple to get started. Teachers further personalize their students' learning by assigning Mangahigh lessons to them using our easy-to-use teaching platform.

The challenge will require students to complete activities recommended. The Mangahigh system automatically provides a list of activities for the students to complete, based on their age, and performance on various topics. During the period of the challenge, teachers may also assign extra activities to your students to enhance the learning experience. To do this, all you will need a Mangahigh Teacher Account.

The goal keeps students motivated throughout. The concept for students is to earn as many medal points by completing lessons to achieve either a Bronze standard, Silver standard or Gold standard. Every Bronze standard achieved collects 1 medal point, a Silver standard achieved is worth 2 medal points, and a Gold standard achieved adds 3 medal points. In case students earn more than 150 points they win a Real Medal as well. Five training sessions will be held for all the participants to prepare them for the challenge and the competition will be held for two days.
